a very high tide

High tide on Plum Island this afternoon was at 12:38 PM.

It was an unusually high tide. I passed over the Parker River on Route 1 on my way to the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge at about 1 PM. The river was swollen, with water flooding areas that are normally dry.

I entered the refuge a good half hour after high tide. Water approached the edges of the road on the inland side of the island. What an amazing view!
